The Dwarven Fortress of Constructbegin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Urist McLeader with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.415 billion Constructbeginians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Donlodir. The average income tax rate is 62.6%.

The powerhouse Constructbeginian economy, worth 145 trillion Ales a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 102,862 Ales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Constructbeginian Moonshine", photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Urist McLeader, and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Constructbegin's national animal is the Fluffy Wambler, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Armok.

Constructbegin is ranked 136,682nd in the world and 5,380th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.01 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
